    I sold my PS3 a while back and am getting a Vita next month and would like to keep using my tag for PSN as I had quite a few trophys.
    Only problem is I can only remember my ID which was: ThugETH
    Is there anyway I can find out what email I used to make the account?
    I have tried the ones I can think of on the site to reset password but none are recognized.
    I know it's not a big problem to make a new tag but i would rather keep my old one if possible. Any help much appreciated, I think if it is anything like Xbox Live then I am screwed.

    I was going to contact Sony direct but there are so many different contact mails I'm unsure which to use.

    it doesn't have a "have you forgotten your email?" option?

    No just a forgotten password.
    I have tried my main emails and none work :(

    I've also found a number: 0844 736 0595 but I'm unsure if it's for PSN accounts too

    If you have a bank account linked or any way to prove it's yours, it shouldn't be too hard, I guess.

    Thanks I finally got it back today I had to do loads of stuff to prove to Sony that it was mine and it was all because I put my DOB as 1900 when I signed up lol.

    yeah, i cannot stress that enough, make sure you remember what fake birthdate you put in
    its used for password recovery (lost a few other region accounts [not really important] because of that)
    and bascially had to guess my friends fake birthdate he put to reset his password
